CALEY JAGS MAKE BRILL SIGNING
Inverness Caledonian Thistle have signed goalkeeper Dean Brill until the summer of 2016.
Brill has made a big impact since joining the club in July on loan from Luton Town until January. Caley Jags have now negotiated with the English club to release the 6 feet 3 inch tall keeper from his contract.
Club chairman Kenny Cameron said: "Discussions with Dean and Luton have been ongoing but they have now been brought to a highly satisfactory conclusion.
"Luton have cancelled the remainder of his two-year contract which was due to expire next summer. That has cleared the way for us to reach agreement with Dean and I am extremely pleased that he has signed a two and a half year contract with us.
"Dean has been very good to deal with and our supporters will be delighted that he has put pen to paper."
Dean, who will be 28 next month, commented: "Coming to Inverness has turned out a great move for me. I enjoy living here and there is a great dressing room solidarity. I was very pleased to agree a long-term deal with the chairman and commit my future to Caley Thistle."
Brill joined Luton's youth set-up as a nine year old and was in their academy setup from 1995 to 2003 when the club signed him as a full professional. Luton turned down a request from Liverpool who wanted 18-year-old Brill as a trialist.
In 2009 he helped the Hatters win the Football League Trophy, beating Scunthorpe United in the final at Wembley.
After six years with Luton's senior squad ,he joined Oldham Athletic in 2009 on a two-year deal then last summer he had a spell with Barnet before Luton came calling again. Now, however, his future is in the Highlands.
